Head Instructor Report – Week of August 9th

Summer version 2010 continues in full form this week at SLSC! We have a great week planned out and lots of updates to give ya!

Here’s the news and this week’s sneak peek of the week!

Kate and Amy and Owen and Meghan

We would like to wish a good luck to team Thomas plus Amy this week at summer games, we have Kate and Amy, Owen and Max in 420’s and Meghan in Laser Radial, best of luck to all our sailors.

Cottage Club and National Capital Regattas

This past week the Jr. Race Team headed off to a regatta at Stoney Lake Yacht Club. All accounts say that it was a positive experience for our younger racers entering this new wacky world of regattas. Keep up the good work guys!

Pizza/Treasure Hunt

Its treasure hunt day, Wednesday the sailors will collect clues in search of buried pirate treasure, this treasure will be found with numerous clues scattered throughout the bay and the club area…..arrrrrhhhhh.

Wednesday is still PIZZA DAY! (so don’t worry about packing a lunch – although a water bottle is strongly recommended). As Leslie is away this week Brenda Devine will be in charge of pizza day, so make sure we all thank her

Get excited!

Movie Night/Dance

Tuesday is movie night. Two movies will be shown in the Clubhouse: the first suitable for all ages and the second open to 13 year olds and up. The first movie begins at 6:30 and each movie costs a dollar. Please bring a reusable cup for juice.

And of course, Friday is DANCE TIME. Starts at 7 – bring a dollar for admission and another couple bucks for pop/freezies. The theme for this week will be announced at flag raising – don’t worry the Silvers will explain!

The Silvers organize both of these events – so they will provide all the details!!

(Remember, if you have any questions about this you can call the club @ 887-5110)

Wednesday Night Races

Wednesday Night Races continue this week. They have been absolutely gorgeous evening sails so far and have definitely become a highlight of the week. So take a break after club, eat some dinner and then head back at 7 p.m. for some early evening sailing. Experienced and non-experienced racers will be paired up.

Water bottles and bring things.

Just a reminder: bring a water bottle to Sailing Club because we have a water cooler that you can refill with if needed. Help us help you stay hydrated!

Also, on top of a lifejacket and proper footwear, please bring warm clothing and rain gear if possible – because unless it’s reeeaally bad weather, we’re going sailing! Oh and bring your sunscreen, because summer is in full swing!
